New stuff at Eclectica By Jan
Did you know that in Feng Shui, fish are symbols of luck and success? You can use this card as a feng shui enhancement to bring good energy flowing your way. My fish card folds to 2.5" by 3.5", which is the standard size for ACEO. It comes with an envelope and a piece of vellum for writing your message.
The charm of ACEO's is that they are an affordable way to own an original piece of artwork. Many people collect them; I've even heard them called addictive! Well, I wouldn't want to call myself a pusher, but I'd be happy for you to take a look and maybe even buy one or two:-) Prices are currently $6 for the gift-card ACEO, and $5 for the standard ACEO (see the sun-face card illustrated below), plus shipping. You can see them all at EclecticaByJan.etsy.com.
Now, let me tempt you with some advance pictures of a work in progress. I'm crocheting a beautiful, lacy afghan in the most gorgeous tones of frosty blue. It's being made out of a Lion Brand yarn called Homespun - a thick and scrumptiously soft yarn that's just perfect for keeping you cozy. Don't you just want this for winter nights with a good book and a fire? Never fear, I'll post a big announcement right here when I get the Blue Lace Afghan listed for sale.
I do think the blue shades in this yarn are so soothing, but if this isn't the right color for you, talk to me! This afghan, and most of my crocheted work, can be made to custom order so you'll have the colors that are right for you. You can email me, or use the "contact" feature on the Etsy site. I'm always happy to hear from you!
